Instruments Played

  1. A short piece exploring contrasts between legato and staccato.
  2. This minuet might be better described as a scherzo.
  3. This minuet is experimental and not in the galant style.
  4. A minuet for solo flute. I thought about adding a cello accompaniment which I may do later.
  5. Attached is the third movement of my piano trio. (yes completed before the second) I'm quite pleased as I wrote it very quickly for my standards. It's in minuet and trio form and is very short. please leave any thoughts down below.
  6. Im undecided if I like this piece. I think i might hate it. The theme is quite annoying. I do like the combo of flute and cello though.

    Minuet in D

    Hi! Minuets are trendy here it seems, and I've been recommended to try my hand at some. So here is a first minuet and trio for piano and flute. I feel it would be hard to dance on it, I realized I'm not very comfortable with a ternary rythm (and I forgot halfway that it was supposed to be a dance at all). The overall structure is: minuet1 - trio - minuet 1', where: minuet 1 is written in 2 parts for piano. It is made of 2 repeating sections [A] and [B-A']. A finishes on a half-cadence, B modulates and brings contrast, A' is same as A but ending on a perfect cadence the
  8. Im enjoying composing minuets and marches for beginners on the piano. They are very simple and easy to play. The B section of this minuet is experimental for me, I've tried my hand at counterpoint.
  9. Im sorry for spamming the piano forum. In future I'll group my compositions under one thread. These two pieces are for beginners.
  10. A minuet for flute and cello in D. I called it The Dancing Soldier because the melody sounds like a march.
  11. In this minuet I use a three stage monte. I think I have quoted Mozart in the last few bars, possibly the minuet from symphony 40.
  12. The B section of this minuet only repeats 4 bars of A rather than the whole 8 bars which is common in short keyboard minuets of the galant style.
  13. Hello everyone! Recently I started reading Schoenberg's "Fundamentals of Musical Composition" and I decided to write several compositions of the simple forms from the book to try to apply what I learn. The first form was the minuet and this is the first minuet I composed. I composed it in a rather free way (I plan to compose a few stricter shorter minuets next, trying to make them simpler since I keep overcomplicating things when composing). The piece follows the minuet [:A:][:BA':] form with the following tonalities and number of measures: - A: 16 measures
  14. Another minuet. Ive tried to use schemas in this composition such as the fonte and prinner. Minuet_in_Eb.mid
  15. This minuet is more baroque than galant in style. I think I'll take a break from composing now and study some more. Thank you to all those that have listened to my music and given me feedback, ive learned alot these past two weeks or so.
  16. Another minuet. The main theme was hard to 'unmodulate' in the second section, i cant tell if it sounds awful or not.
  17. Im learning melody writing and using the minuet form. Ive written a few minuets for piano so far and i will most likely add a base for this melody.
  18. This minuet flirts with modulating but remains in G. Section A is 8 bars and section B is 16 bars which is quite typical of short keyboard minuets. I expanded the transition back to the main theme using only a G chord that rises using triplets, im not quite sure if it works.
  19. Does the theme sound more like its in D major because of the G natural used at the start?
  20. More of a joke than a minuet
  21. Another minuet, i used a deceptive cadence in the main theme which creates a small pause before the modulating sequence.
  22. A bit more adventurous than my previous work. I tried using the fonte schema, im not sure if ive pulled it off though.
  23. So, I have finished my first minuet and trio for solo piano. Hope you like it :3. I added an harmonic analysis (very roughly). Any comments are apreciated :3. Almost all the minuet is based on this motive.
  24. Well, this is the recomposed version of a "minuet attempt" that I composed some time ago, I recomposed it just today. I recomposed it because the bass was very simple (just octaves in half notes), and it didnt have the form of a minuet. at least now it haves the form I include an harmonic analysis (very roughly) Almost all the minuet is based on the motive of the image The trio isn't finished, I will add it later Any comments are apreciated :3.
  25. After a two-year hiatus, for the month of December I decided to go back working on this set of 26 minuets which I have been working on off from 2016 to 2017, and stopped in 2018 when I have other things to work on. Here's the status of the minuets as of April 2018: Anyway, after that and up till December, I have gained new musical knowledge and experiences which can be reflected in this new version of the set. More dynamics are added, the pitch range has also been expanded as well and incorporating other forms (Rondo and Sonata) into a few of the minuets as well. Many of the music
